Day View Club

The November meeting of Merimbula Day View Club will be held at Merimbula RSL Club at 11.30am for a 12 noon lunch on Friday, November 8. This month Jan will be taking booking and/or apologies on her mobile 0488 991 416. Topaz is November's birth stone with chrysanthemums the flower, so a touch of yellow would be nice.

We will be hearing about some of our members at this meeting and don't forget the "Make it, Bake it, Sew it, Grow it" table. Please mark the items you donate for sale with a price, and if you would like to take part in a gift exchange at the Christmas meeting, gifts will be accepted from now on.

View Clubs are an important part of The Smith Family which is a national charity helping young Australians in need, to make the most of their education, thereby creating better futures for themselves. Visitors are always welcome at club meetings.
